WATERTOWN, Conn. (AP) — Authorities say a man looking for his missing brother found his body inside a well in western Connecticut.

Police say the man searched his brother’s property in Watertown on Thursday after not hearing from him for several days and discovered the body.

Officials say it appears the 58-year-old victim was working on the well when he fell in and became trapped about five feet down. There were no signs of foul play.

The name of the man who died hasn’t been released. Authorities say it appears his body was in the well for several days. An autopsy will be performed.

Police say the man lived with his 83-year-old mother, who was found lying on the kitchen floor and brought to a hospital. Her condition hasn’t been released.
